According to Germanic origin, the name Wolfgangtranslates into “advancing wolf”. When analysts of baby names discuss the name, they attribute to it characteristics of a charismatic and distinguished nature. That being said, it is far from shocking to understand why the name Wolfgang is an appropriate one for revolutionary composers immortalized in history such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, or culinary artists of our time like Wolfgang Puck.
Although not named Wolfgang Gartner when he was born in Austin, Texas in 1982, Joey Youngman adopted the name seemingly tantamount with prominence as a stage alias when he started to release virtually mind controlling techno-electronic musical masterpieces in 2008, effectively separating him from the Deep House productions of his formative years.
Gartner is best known for what has essentially become his theme song. Gartner has masterfully mixed Symphony No.5 in C minor by celebrated composer Ludwig Van Beethoven with a unique and creative medley of heavy base and upbeat rhythm producing one of the most satisfying modern compositions of our time. It is a nod to music’s roots with a little taste of what the future holds.
In an interview with AM Only, Gartner is quoted as saying “I feel like I have a responsibility to advance the genre”.Wolfgang’s 5th Symphonyis simply a sneak peak into the future of the digital music genre, emphasizing what is possible in a technologically advancing society without completely phasing out the measures in which it took to arrive at where music is today.
Gartner, DJ and owner of the label Kindergarten, will be joining headliner Steve Aoki and other artists such as Smash Gordon, Jen Lasher, Scottie B, Nero, and others in Baltimore, Maryland next week (November 27) for Fall Massive, an event that is becoming a seasonal tradition and well known not only on the east coast, but throughout the country as well.
